On arrival, meet your professional and knowledgeable local guide in a walking tour of about one hour and follow the path to the lip of the falls. Then, behold the tiered cascades that tumble from different heights down into a natural amphitheater of red-colored rock cliffs. Absorb the roar of the cascades as you take photos, and with luck, see some of the Barbary apes that congregate by the water or one of the shimmering rainbows that form in the mists wreathed around the plunging waters. Visit several view points to drink in the setting, walk down steps to the base and explore the caves where water mills are used to grind wheat grain into flour — giving the falls their name. Having taken in the full beauty of the area, relax over lunch at one of the restaurants along the path to the falls with an amazing view. Lastly, enjoy your return journey to Marrakech, where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.
This place was beautiful. Would highly recommend staying a night there. Would definitely return. Expect long journey.
This was such an amazing experience!! Everything was perfectly planned and executed. I couldn't have asked for a better guide Abdul! He knew everything about everything. I love history and him being just as excited to share as I was to receive was awesome! The lunch was really tasty and the mint tea was absolutely the best. I would highly recommend seeing this spectacular waterfall and viewing how the people of this community live.
Well worth the time. drive out from Marrakech interesting. Falls are amazing. Great driver and local guide. Lunch was fabulous overlooking falls. Opportunity to look around small town near top of falls before the drive back.
Oh my gosh, this was the most fun of any tour we took. Our guide Mustafa was informative, but had such a good since of humor, it just made the tour so much fun!! Of course, the couple with us, Michael and Sherry from Sacramento were a blast!! Great Tour!! At times the stairs were challenging, but doable!!
This was a once in lifetime view of a remote mountain gem. Be willing to hike down and back up! some rugged, steep paths. Don't miss the macaque monkeys!
This was an amazing tour. The waterfalls are absolutely breathtaking. It's a bit of a long journey to get to them about a two hour drive but it is definitely worth it. Our driver was great - he spoke English perfectly and gave us a big insight into Moroccian culture. Our guide at the falls was great too! He taught us a lot about the Berbers and allowed us to ask a lot of questions about their culture. The place we ate lunch has a fantastic view. All around amazing.
My only comment is that you start at the top of the falls and hike your way to the bottom. The hike takes about an hour and is a bit steep. I would not recommend this trip for the elderly.
Great day out into the Atlas Mountains area. The Falls were spectacular and provided a very welcome and refreshing soaking, which was enjoyed by all in 43 degree heat! Have to say the description of a bit of a trek was understating it a bit, and the tour involved more than an hour's hike. The Berber driver/guide Mido was a gentleman and scholar with interesting cultural views. Ibrahim the local guide was easy-going and informative. Highly recommend this break from the thrills and excitement of old Marrakech!
What a day this was. Our driver/guide, Ahmed was waiting for us at our pickup point when we came out of the Medina and immediately made us feel welcome. It is a long journey to the falls, over 3.5 hours and Ahmed made the trip very, very pleasant. His English and knowledge of his country were both excellent and he told us many things that we would never have noticed and made the trip seem a lot shorter than what it was. When we arrived at the falls he handed us over to the Berber guide, Ismail, who took us through his village and around the falls. Ismail had lived in the UK for many years so there was no language problem there. During our time on tour we were never taken shopping or hassled in any way which made the day so much more enjoyable. Ahmed went out of his way to make the day so good for me, my Wife and her Sister, he was jovial and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend him and this Day trip out of Marrakech.
LOVED this day trip!!! My driver, Ahmed pick me up and whisked me away to Ouzoud falls... about 3 hours from Marrakech. Ahmed was a great driver... I hope you get to meet him....he filled the travel time with laughs and was willing to share information about the Moroccan culture.
The moment you set sights on the second highest waterfall in all of Africa... Victoria Falls is 3 meters higher... it take your breath away!!! The hike around the falls is about an hour and paths are pretty well maintained. Am not going to lie watching the falls in the SVP sitting section with my 2 new friends from the United Kingdom Lauren and Dan while eating lunch... AWESOME!
Fantastic trip with funny and friendly driver, guide and everything running like clockwork. One of the highlights of my trip to Marrakech, a must see.
